Caitlin (Japanese: カトレア Cattleya) is a Master Psychic-type Trainer and member of the Unova Elite Four. She is also the head of the Battle Castle in the Battle Frontier that appeared in Pokémon Platinum, HeartGold and SoulSilver.

In the games

In HeartGold, SoulSilver, and Platinum, Caitlin is the employer of Castle Valet Darach and oversees his Battle Castle battles. She is responsible for determining how many CP the player should receive depending on the outcome of the battle. She is said to be the most important person in the Battle Castle and acts like its princess.

In Black and White, Caitlin appears as a member of the Elite Four of Unova; she traveled to the region alone in order to develop her skills further. It is revealed that she possesses some sort of psychic powers, and that in the past, she had an explosive temper that would erupt if she lost a battle causing her psychic powers to cause a lot of damage. This may be the reason why Darach fought in her place in Generation IV. It may also explain why she was quite impatient, as she demanded that Darach give the player Castle Points "at once!" after each victory in the Battle Castle.

She later appears in a villa that she is lending to Cynthia, as do the other female Gym Leaders and Elite Four members. She also mentions her time at the Battle Castle while in the villa.

Initial fight
  • Before battle
"Who are you? How impudent you are to disturb my sleep. Hmf... You appear to possess a combination of strength and kindness. Very well. Make your best effort not to bore me with a yawn-inducing battle. Clear?"
  • During battle (the first non-KO HP loss)
"I get the feeling a wonderful time is about to start. I'm excited!"
  • After sending out last Pokémon
"Even at a time like this, I should stay cool and collected..."
  • During battle (less than half HP)
"For the sake of the Pokémon that believe in me, I will never give up."
  • When defeated
"As a Trainer, you are both excellent and elegant. Your Pokémon have class. I am very pleased to have battled you."
  • After being defeated
"You haven't faced all of the members of the Elite Four yet, have you? Don't concern yourself about me. Go on ahead."
  • General afterword
"In the past, when I battled, the force of my emotions shook me greatly. When my power awoke, I came close to destroying everything around me. That weak person no longer exists... Still, sometimes, my determination fails. Always, I aspire to wrap up a victory with elegance and grace. I invite you to be my opponent again in the future, if you wish."
  • If defeated last
"Somehow, you managed to defeat the entire Elite Four of the Pokémon League. Check the statue in the center of the plaza for the way to the Champion's room."

Cynthia's villa
"Having everything go your way is the road to disillusionment. Knowing the difference between what's impossible and what's possible... I used to know someone who talked about that a lot."
"No matter how hard I try, I cannot defeat Cynthia. Before, I would have exploded with rage. Now, I have the tranquility to reflect on my performance to see how I can improve."
"Tell me something. Are you familiar with Battle Castles? You can find them in Johto and Sinnoh, so challenge them to improve yourself."
"This is my villa. I have villas all over the world, and I allow Cynthia to use them. You are welcome to come and play whenever you wish."
"Having no psychic powers at all is better than having psychic powers you can't control."

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Caitlin (top), Darach, and Dahlia

Caitlin appeared alongside her valet, Darach, in the Platinum chapter of Pokémon Adventures. She first appeared when she misheard Looker referring to Platinum as "Lady" as talking to her. When Looker tried to tell her about the mistake, her Gallade immediately attacked him, stripping him down to his underwear. She later watched Platinum and Darach battle at the Battle Castle and scolded Darach when he was defeated.

It is later revealed that Caitlin has gained a desire to battle after watching Platinum's battle against Darach. This desire to fight causes her latent psychic powers to awaken and go out of control while Caitlin crazily mutters the word "fight" over and over. She is calmed down by Darach when he offers her some tea.

Caitlin in Black & White chapter

In the Black and White chapter, it is revealed that she has become a member of the Unova Elite Four. She reappears in the Pokémon League, when the Elite Four reunited before the tournament started. As they discuss Alder's recent defeat by the hands of N, the Elite Four question on what to do about Team Plasma. Caitlin chooses to let Team Plasma continue their speeches, as they're technically not doing anything wrong.

Although she defends Team Plasma's freedom of speech, Caitlin feels that their recent kidnapping of the Gym Leaders deserves action against. By using the ability of her Gothitelle and her own psychic powers, Caitlin begins to communicate with the Gym Leaders to try and find their current location. Although she is unable to determine the Gym Leader's location, Caitlin is able to find out that they are alright. She travels to the location of Black's Gym battle against Drayden to relay a message to Black from the Gym Leaders.

Gothitelle is the second Pokémon Caitlin is known to have. By using Gothitelle's psychic abilities, Caitlin was able to communicate with the Gym Leaders kidnapped by Team Plasma to learn of their condition. Later, Caitlin used Gothitelle to connect Black's mind to the other Gym Leaders so they would be able to relay a message to him.

None of Gothitelle's moves are known.

Status unknown

Caitlin's Gallade
Gallade
Gallade is Caitlin's Pokémon and bodyguard, protecting her from any possible attackers. He first appeared when he attacked Looker after he mistook the officer for an attacker when he stepped too close to Caitlin. Gallade was later used against Platinum in the Battle Castle under the control of Darach where it managed to defeat two of Platinum's Pokémon before being defeated by her Empoleon. It is unknown whether or not Caitlin kept him after becoming an Unova Elite Four.

Gallade's known moves are Slash, Psycho Cut, Feint, and Night Slash.
